Speaker spike questions

I have a pair of eltax floor standing speakers standing on carpet and i also happen to live on the top floor of a maisonette.

If i fit speaker spikes to the bottom of my speakers, would this reduce the amount of base that is heard downstairs?

Also, there are no fixing holes in the bottom of my speakers is it safe to drill holes in order to accomodate the speaker spikes.

any help much appreciated.

You can get glue on spikes which would be preferred over drilling speakers. Try also getting hold of something like a piece of thick slate/stone to put on the floor under the speakers as well as the spikes this will help.

It might be easier to buy or make a stand with top and bottom spikes
Does that not negate the point of floor standing speakers?

Not at all, as long as the height of the stand is small. Often these stands will have a larger footprint which makes the speaker more stable and therefore can increase the sound quality
